Each week, CK Science is providing a snapshot of the Analytical Chemistry jobs market. Over time, we aim to give you a picture of how it changes and evolves, and most importantly, how this may impact on you depending on overall demand and seasonal changes. So whether you are an Analyst looking for a new science job or an employer seeking new Chemist to join your team, we hope that this market snapshot helps you with your decision making.
Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Analytical Chemistry jobs have been advertised within the previous week.
This summary was completed on Monday 16th March and relates to adverts posted for Analytical Chemists on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs.
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 559 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, which is a small increase from last weeks figure of 733, with:
- 461 permanent roles
- 98 temporary or contract roles
There has been a 23% drop in Analytical Chemistry jobs in the past week which has been reflected in both permanent and temporary jobs. Whether this is related to the budget update or other scientific jobs market influences we are unsure, but we will continue to monitor to see if it’s a temporary blip, or not.
